Since a lot of you have been wondering, I wanted to keep you up to date with what's happening with my Emily...I also wanted to take this opportunity to share an altered cup I'd forgotten to share with you.
First things first though...Emily is doing much better...little by little it seems that she's retuning back to her old self. She's finally smiling here and there, something I missed because she truly does smile all day, all the time thank God. She is finally responding to me when I ask her questions, and she has started at least drinking a little bit. She slept through the night last night, and that's the first time in almost a week. She's still on antibiotics, has a terrible cough (her poor little chest hurts every time she coughs), terrible runny nose, and well, since she has not been eating much at all, she's barely had any bowel movements. I know she's lost a ton of weight because she just looks so skinny to me now, but I'm praying she gets some appetite soon, so she can catch up again.
Again, thank you all for all your concern, prayers and well wishes. We appreciate them very much, and are very happy to say, it's looking like we're almost at the end of this terrible time. I'm sure I grew some gray hairs with all that I've been going through lately!
Ok, now for the fun stuff. This is an altered cup I made on the Tim Holtz cruise and totally forgot to share. They sell all sorts of alterable cups out there, and using paper, rub-ons and some distress ink definitely makes them look really nice. You should definitely try one out.
Thanks so much again for all your support, and I'll catch you next time with another project :)
